United screws up yet again!

How does this even happen, Wouldnt the scanner at boarding blink red if scanned with a wrong Boarding pass?

It probably did and was just ignored by the gate agent.

Are they really expected to announce gate changes in French in an American airport? Everyone wants to join the bandwagon.. #Yellowjournalism (if anyone remembers that term)

Not speaking English does not deem someone incompetent.

Nope. Though it is 2017, so why should there be any personal responsibility.
There would be no news if we didn't have people to blame.

Shame the big LEDs that United has at all their gates in EWR with the destination of the flight don't translate Paris or San Francisco from English into French.
Oh wait. There's no difference.

Still, shouldn't the gate agents see the problem when they scan the boarding pass?

I don't think the passenger has a tayna.


But the gate agents are totally incompetent for letting someone on without a ticket.

Yes, the GA messed up and probably ignored an error beep.
But they are under pressure to board a flight quickly. This is primarily a personal responsibility issue.

Under pressure to board flight quickly???? Is that an excuse? Next thing we'll excuse TSA for letting people get passed security with a gun as long as there is a long line.

Big deal. This is not news. Random airline goofs happen all the time.
Only news now because it's open season on the airlines.

Dan, just out of curiosity would you be saying the same if this happened on a AA flight?  ;)
